Campbell sets D-III pentathlon record
Amelia Campbell, a Sturgeon Bay High School graduate who is now a sophomore at Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., set a new NCAA Division III record in the pentathlon at the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships on Thursday.
Campbell won all five of the pentathlon events - 60-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, long jump and 800 run - with personal-best marks, breaking three school records along the way. Her score of 3,914 points shattered the previous D-III record of 3,725, set in 2009 by Ashley Huston of Hardin-Simmons University.
Campbell's score not only broke the D-III record by nearly 200 points, it's also higher than the top score in NCAA Division II and would rank 32nd in D-I. Earlier this year, Campbell amassed 3,671 points in a meet to break the MIAC record by 145 points and the Carleton record by more than 300.
Campbell won the 60 hurdles in a school-record 8.68 seconds, the 10th-best time in the nation in D-III this season; cleared 1.68 meters (5 feet, 6.13 inches) in the high jump for another school record; recorded a toss of 11.44 meters (37-6.5) in the shot put; went 5.58 meters (18-3.75) in the long jump, also 10th in D-III this season; and won the 800 in 2:21.61.

Registration open for Pink Classic golf
This year's Pink Classic Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 1 at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club in Egg Harbor.
Proceeds from the tournament support the Sue Baldwin Fund to provide breast cancer and other cancer awareness, prevention, treatment and care for Door County residents who have economic needs.
The fund was established in 2007 by Carrie Baldwin Smith in honor of her mother's 10-year breast cancer remission. More than $100,000 has been raised since.
Golfers are encouraged to dress in pink to support the cause, with awards presented for the "prettiest in pink." Following golf, there will be a banquet with live music by Big Mouth & the Power Tool Horns, dancing, food, drinks, and a raffle and live auction.
Cost is $125 per player. To register or for more information, contact Baldwin Smith at (920) 839-1114 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
